With regard to the waterbus concept, while I think it’s a wonderful idea, I feel that one of the biggest probs is going to be the speed restriction from Blackrock Castle in to the quays. Anyone who’s every come up-river by boat will testify that it takes quite some time to complete that leg of the journey within the speed limit. I can’t see the rowing clubs allowing a new waterbus service gaining a special dispensation here. Also remember that this speed limit is speed over water, NOT speed over ground. So while the limit is (I think) 5 knots, if you’re up against a 3-knot tidal stream, you’re only making good 2 knots over ground …… casual walking pace 🙁
